June - Scene 8

This scene was scripted by Jane Plastow drawing upon the direct words spoken by men and women in discussion groups regarding the challenges facing relationships and families in Walukuba today. By reversing gender roles, having women occupy the traditional role of men in society, and men occupying that of women, this scene aimed to challenge the audience to think about the everyday struggles and inequalities women must overcome in their family lives today. The sketch highlighted the disastrous impact of alcohol, domestic violence, the lack of equal opportunities for girl children to attend school, older men preying on young women, and lack of faithfulness in relationships. At the end of the scene the audiencewere invited to discuss the social issues highlighted during the play.
